You feel the same pressures to secure your data as a massive corporation does, but without the massive budget. This white paper gives an overview of next-generation data protection and recovery options designed and priced for small and mid-sized business.
This paper discusses the value of two-factor authentication systems that provide vital access security for today's mobile workforces, who can now be productive from numerous remote locations: the home office, the airport, hotels, and customer sites. Moreover, the ubiquitous nature of mobile phones has now given rise to a new, convenient form factor for the software-based authenticator that resides right on the mobile phone/device.
Enterprises are increasingly opening up their networks to a greater constituency of remote users, but they often do not take into consideration the protection of user identity as a critical component of their strategy. The mobile workforce can now work productively from a remote location such as a home office, the airport, a hotel, or a customer site.
IT managers have indicated their two most significant challenges associated with managing unstructured data at multiple locations were keeping pace with data growth and improving data protection. Learn how the NetApp Distributed Content Repository provides advanced data protection and system recovery capabilities that can enable multiple data centers and remote offices to maintain access to data through hardware and software faults.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.

In today's virtual enterprise, access to corporate resources must be secure, reliable, and manageable, with consistently enforced policy while simultaneously allowing access from anywhere at any time. This is why access network strategies are critical to business growth.
Enterprises have long been battling the inherent performance limitations of Wide Area Networks (WANs) when delivering applications to remote offices. Caching emerged in the 1990’s as a potential way of addressing this problem, accelerating the performance of specific applications, such as web services, while reducing overall WAN traffic. While caching achieved reasonable success for a few short years, the market for these point products ultimately subsided as a result of several operational and functional limitations. Enterprises require an application acceleration solution that spans all types of traffic, one that is easy to manage, and 100% data coherency when supporting business-critical applications. This white paper will address these issues and offer a solution that addresses these enterprise requirements. The result is a complete solution for improved application delivery across a distributed enterprise environment.
Think back to the last time all of your employees were in the office, at their desks, on the same day. Having trouble? Between travel schedules and off-site meetings, remote staff and teleworkers, flexible schedules and sick days, it’s no wonder that having everyone in the office at the same time has become a rarity. Balance that with the fact that in today’s competitive business climate, organisations are driven and employees are measured by achieving results, and it’s clear how important it is to maintain productivity no matter where staff are located. But it’s not always easy to do. Here are five ways you can improve employee productivity in your organisation.
Every day, companies generate mountains of data that are critical to their business. With that data comes
a clear challenge: How do you protect exabytes of data that's strewn across global data centers,
computer rooms, remote offices, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, as well as hosted by many
different cloud providers, without choking business agility, employee productivity, and customer
experience? The solution lies not in throwing more technology at the network, but in taking specific steps
to identify malicious actions and respond to them in order to fix the issue, a process known as
For remote office protection, you can reliably get a backup and a DR copy of data at any location without the need for onsite expertise. Read this paper to learn more about the next generation of deduplication.
"Businesses understand more than ever that they depend on data for insight and competitive advantage. And when it comes to data, they have always wanted easy access and fast performance.
But how is the situation different now? Today, organizations want those elements and more. They want IT to strip away the limitations of time with faster deployment of new databases and applications. They want IT to reduce the limitations of distance by giving remote and branch offices better and more reliable access. And in a global world where business never stops, they want IT to ensure data availability around the clock.
If IT can deliver databases and applications faster, on a more automated and consistent basis, to more locations without having to commit onsite resources, IT will be free to focus on more strategic projects."
The AODA currently provides IT support and management for 32 remote offices serving approximately 1,000 end users. In a field dependent upon the highest standards of data integrity, protection and retention, it was critical for the AODA to implement the disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity solutions necessary for fulfillment of its objectives.
As demands for “right here, right now” information sharing continue to rise, today's organizations are taking a hard look at their branch and remote locations, where performance and service enablement have always been a primary indicator of companywide productivity.

Remote employees have more opportunity for distraction, lack of training, and inability to be refocused on task than their in-office counterparts, so companies need to get serious about ways to gain visibility into the activities of their remote employees to gauge productivity
This paper addresses many common business challenges facing IT organizations, such as enabling mobile workstyles without compromising security, streamlining desktop management efforts as the number of employees in remote offices and offshore locations increases and making the user experience personal through self-service access to applications and desktops.
Your data is everywhere. It’s in the cloud, in virtual environments, in remote offices, and on mobile devices. Plus, there’s more of it, and much of it is business-critical, meaning you need to back up larger volumes of data than ever before without adding costs or bandwidth. Even more importantly, you need the ability to restore data quickly in the event of a disaster, failure, outage. The cost of data protection is higher now more than ever.
Fast-growing data and widespread virtualization have ratcheted up data protection challenges no matter what the size of your business.

Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach could place data at risk. A new kind of storage architecture allows IT to consolidate remote servers and data in the data center by decoupling storage from its server over any distance—even thousands of miles—and still get the same performance as if the storage remained local to the branch. Organizations can now consolidate remote infrastructure to
increase security and ef?ciency, without adversely impacting end-user performance in branch of?ces.
